“Fantastic Heritage Architecture!”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

If you love heritage architecture you'll love Beacon Hill with its grand townhouses and unique shops. Love to walk these original brick and cobblestone streets! Tip: A few are open to the public as museums!

“GOT to see”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Bit of a walk and on the trail got to see this . really cool side of town and historic . Young kids and impatient tourist may not like this section. If you have the time its a great place to walk where history has walked cool.

You can access by private car or just stroll the streets

“Your fantasy of Boston come true”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

We all have a deep-rooted fantasy of another place. This is it. This is where Boston looks like Boston. Beacon Hill is essentially a village within the city itself. I travel to a foreign country almost twice a year, but always love coming back to Beacon Hill. It is unique.

“Holiday time is my favorite”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I love walking around Beacon Hill during the fall and holiday time. Close to so many great bars and restaurants, the public gardens. This part of town is such a great walking area. Cobblestone roads and lanterns give it so much character.

“Scenic Area”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

Very nice, old area of town. Some nice coffee-shops, restaurants and stores in the area. Go on a dry day, otherwise the brick sidewalks can be a bit slippery.
